You may want to try contacting the local ACM of the
San Francisco bay area. They meet in Cupertino at
Hewlett Packard. A few years ago a few people who worked
on the Rovers came and did a presentation.

The ACM officers may know whom to contact.

Hope this is useful/helpful.

I apologize for cc'ing you since I'm replying to SVLUG.
Since I have no idea which email Paul Reiber will allow
through from me, I want to make sure you get my response,
though I normally just reply to the SVLUG mailing list.
